Ghosts and ghouls are lurking nearby,
Intent on disturbing my journey, oh my!
Still I press on, with hope at my core,
Determined to survive and settle the score.
I connect the dots, digesting their points,
Navigate, and try harder not to disappoint,
I reach a power pellet, as well as some fruit,
My strength multiplies, and the ghosts are consumed.

I saw my eldest Son playing a new version of the 1980’s classic game “Pac-Man” today, and it got me reminiscing about my childhood memories playing it. It’s awesome to think that my kids are enjoying a game that has been around 40 years now, that I grew up with.
After a while of him playing, I began to wonder just how crazy it would be to be a part of this crazy maze-like World, that Pac-Man must exist in and battle through in order to stay alive. At that point, I started constructing parallels between his reality and ours.
How would I deal with similar challenges to his, and what strategies could I employ to best secure my survival and progress? It was a rewarding experience, bringing about both this piece, and a general reinvigoration of purpose.
So, don’t let the spooks scare you from doing what you were born to do, plot your path, use your instincts, nourish yourself, use every skill and advantage at your disposal, and don’t wait to be trapped or caught, instead, take the game to them, my friends, with belief and vigour!
Love and Respect always,
